The British island of Guernsey is the second largest Channel Island and is located 48 km west of the Normandy coast in France and it offers visitors a mild climate, breathtaking scenery and a peaceful atmosphere. Between the large sandy beaches to the north and the rocky cliffs in the south, you’ll find wooded valleys, swamps and winding country roads. Guernsey enjoys nearly 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, making it one of the sunniest places in the British Isles. St. Peter Port is the capital of this British territory.
Guernsey was occupied by the Germans during World War II and several sites can be visited there today.
